About the HSK
The HSK measures the proficiency level of non-native speakers of standard Chinese and is used as a guideline for admission to colleges and universities in China and Southeast Asia. Test-takers are issued certificates when they meet the minimum level of proficiency required within each level of testing. Because the HSK has developed a prominent status in assessing Chinese language proficiency, it is commonly used as a reference standard in job recruiting, both within China and in countries around the world where Chinese language skills are necessary.
The new HSK consists of two independent parts: written test and oral test. The written test can be divided into six levels from HSK-Level 1 to HSK-Level 6. As a test of general language proficiency, HSK is differentiated by six new levels of difficulty, while the oral test can be divided into three levels of HSK (Basic), HSK (Elementary-Intermediate), HSK (Advanced), and the candidates’ on-site performance will be recorded.
